The Tangy Essence of Goodness With Spice Root's Organic Tamarind Concentrate

Sep 30, 2023Spice Root0 comments

In a world full of culinary delights, few ingredients can evoke the senses quite like tamarind. Its unique blend of sweet and tangy flavours has been tantalizing our taste buds for centuries. Tamarind, scientifically known as Tamarindus indica, is a tropical tree native to Africa, now grown and cultivated all over southern Asia. Its fruit, resembling a bean pod, houses a sticky, brown pulp with a distinctive sweet and sour taste.

Used extensively in cuisines around the world, tamarind adds depth, complexity, and a delightful zing to a wide range of recipes. Now, with Spice Root's Organic Tamarind Concentrate, the essence of this beloved fruit is more accessible and delicious than ever before.


Here's Why Consumers Love Spice Root's Tamarind Concentrate:

Tamarind cannot be used directly in food preparations. To use tamarind, one needs to de-seed the fruit, then soak or boil the fleshy part of the fruit in hot water. This needs to be drained, and the tangy water then added to the food preparation. This multi-step process of extracting the flavour of tamarind and using it in foods is cumbersome and messy.

Spice Root’s product removes the hassle of this entire process. Easy to use in a liquid form, it can be added directly to food preparations at any stage. Tamarind has a sour, acidic flavour and can be added to marinades, chutneys, soups, stews and more.
Moreover, our product is shelf stable even after the bottle has been opened. It has a long shelf life as long as the product is kept in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight. It does not need to be refrigerated.
